Multimedia Digital Showcase & Graphic Wall Map

“The African continent must be a laboratory. We must imagine novel forms; we must reinvent a richer and more open humanity.” This is how Senegalese economist Felwine Sarr described a possible reinvention of Africa. The continent’s emerging leaders and activists will undoubtedly play a key role. An online exhibition, Culture at Work Africa, Multimedia Digital Showcase & Graphic Wall Map pays tribute to them by presenting a series of recent groundbreaking initiatives that highlight the importance of intercultural dialogue and cultural diversity in the development of inclusive and peaceful societies within the continent’s complex urban spaces and politically sensitive crossroads.
The Multimedia Digital Showcase and Graphic Wall Map includes 33 projects that were conducted in 15 African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe).

From 30 April, you will also be able to view part of it in the Horta Hall. An interactive map with QR codes will give you access to online texts and videos about several projects in this fascinating exhibition.
